How to find out the best gaming linux software to play World of Warcroft?
Im not interested in open office, e-mail etc. just use my laptop to run games.

There are linux ports fpr many games but none for WoW. However, you can get many windows programs to run in linux via WINE which is basically a compatibility layer.
It is not perfect by any means and where WoW works well many games may not. Check out http://www.winehq.org/ to see if all your games run under wine.

IMHO if all you want to do is play games then stick with windows. However, I would try Ubuntu since it is a good beginner distribution.

I play wow in a program called Cedega. http://www.transgaming.com/products/cedega/ which you can see a wow screen shot here http://www.transgaming.com/imgs/transgamin...en_cedega01.jpg. It offers more stability and support than WINE. Although I find wine is more faster then cedega. There was a issue a while ago regarding people being banned playing wow with wine and cedega seems to offer a more blizzard trusted environment. http://www.cedega.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=41042. But since then transgaming has been in talks with blizzard but i'm still not sure on the risks of still playing on linux.
